Warm Cranberry Brie

(The picture was taken after I'de already eaten some of it. So it looks a bit messier than when I first made it. Also, if the cheese is not as melty as you want it, feel free to zap it in the microwave for a minute or two.)

1 (16-ounce) round Brie
1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
2 tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup slivered almonds

Trim rind from top of Brie, leaving a 1/3-inch border on top. Place Brie on a baking sheet. Stir together cranberry sauce and all ingredients, minus almonds; spread mixture evenly over top of Brie. Sprinkle evenly with almonds. Bake Brie at 350° for 15 minutes. Serve with baked and toasted slices of Pillsbury French Bread or store-bought loaf (tastes better warm).
